What is the equation of the line having the specified slope and contained the indicated point. M=-3/5;(12,-6)

  • Algebra -

    Just use the good old point-slope form:

    (y+6)/(x-12) = -3/5

    rearrange things as you will; one form of the equation is as good as another.

  • Algebra -

    Given: m = -3/5, P(12,-6).

    Y = mx + b,
    Y = (-3/5)12 + b = -6,
    -36/5 + b = -6,
    b = -6 + 36/5,
    b = -30/5 + 36/5 = 6/5.

    Eq: Y = (-3/5)x + 6/5.
